Music at Christ Church This Afternoon

At 4 p.m. today, Diamond Opera Theater inaugurates its new concert series called Voices at Christ Church with a concert entitled "Wanderlust: An Evening of Adventurous Music," featuring mezzo-soprano Mary Deyerle Hack and baritone Martin Mansfield, accompanied by pianist Noah Palmer.

Wanderlust will take the audience on a tour of Europe and home again, exploring the richness of love and our instinctual desire to explore the world around us. The concert includes songs by Maurice Ravel, from his cycle about Don Quixote’s quest for the love of  Dulcinea. French impressionist music continues with the pianist’s performance of "Reflections in the Water," from Claude Debussy’s Images. The vocal soloists move to German music, two songs by Johannes Brahms and Songs of a Wayfarer by Gustav Mahler. The far-reaching program will conclude with two songs from the American songbook: "The Impossible Dream," from Mitch Leigh's Man of La Mancha, and "Take Me to the World," from a little known musical written for television by Stephen Sondheim.

There is a suggested donation of $10 at the door. A reception with the artists will follow the one hour concert.
